Your life is a gift. To witness a newborn baby is amazing. Parents often look at a fresh little baby with a complete sense of wonder. But sadly as time passes, we tend to forget how special life is. Parents even fail sometimes to appreciate their own kids. But your value is far greater than any human parent can convey. The Creator of Heaven and Earth made a point to recognize your worth. The Creator of Heaven and Earth, The Living God, gave His most precious treasure to freely redeem your soul. He loves you like no one else ever could.
How God can love you to Heaven
- Sin is a real problem.
God’s laws are for our good. When we sin, we violate His laws and set up for pain & failure.
“sin, when it is finished… death.” James 1:15
God cares deeply if we sin; because He loves us, because He has a much better vision for our lives, and because our sin hurts others that He loves. To resolve properly the consequences of our sin, we’d be destined for an eternity in Hell.
“And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” Rev. 20:15
- Jesus Christ paid in full.
We cannot imagine the full extent of our sin’s consequences, and we will never be able to cor-rect our own wrongs. Jesus did what we cannot.
“…Christ died for the ungodly.” Romans 5:6
“…the body of Jesus Christ once for all.” Heb. 10:10
- You are free to accept.
There’s an old saying, “He that’s persuaded against his will is of the same persuasion still.” God does not twist arms, nor does he disregard our will. If you want sincerely to be forgiven of your sin in the person of Jesus Christ, then just ask.
“Ask, and it shall be given you…” Matthew 7:7
“…whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13
- Jesus Christ will live in you.
The Lord Jesus will forgive and secure all those who receive sincerely His finished work—HIS OWN PURE BLOOD OFFERED FOR US. Jesus died for our sins, but He also rose from the dead to confirm that His work conquered death and Hell. His Spirit will literally live WITH us and overcome sin in our lives as we yield to Him day to day. We are ETERNALLY SECURE in Jesus Christ from the first moment that we receive Him as Savior, but it is our FREE PRIVILEGE to grow WITH Him from that moment on.
“…the riches…Christ in you…” Colossians 1:27
“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.” Hebrews 13:8
